New on NPR (WBEZ)
There’s a lot going on here.
For starters, we have a new interactive comic with the awesome crew at WBEZ‘s Curious City. It’s all about new neighborhood names, how neighborhoods form and who decides which ones stick around. Chicagoans are particularly descriptive when it comes to their ‘hoods, so we traveled around the city to find out what makes those ‘hoods special to begin with.
The comic, “Kathy Has a Question…” can be found here (check the web text, for more info)
Secondly, our full audio feature aired on WBEZ shortly after the comic went live. The story takes a deeper look into the “who” of who’s naming our neighborhoods.
And, like we mentioned earlier, it’s not who you think…
In this episode:
Veteran journalist Rick Kogan calls Darryl “something of a young genius” after describing Erik’s art as “un-blanking-believable.”
